Vienna: Two people including one suspect were killed in central Vienna on Monday evening in what Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz described as a “repulsive terror attack”.

Police said there was “one deceased person” and several injured, including one police officer.

Meanwhile, one suspect was “shot and killed by police officers,” informed Vienna police said via Twitter.

Interior Minister Karl Nehammer told public broadcaster ORF that the operation against the attackers was still underway at around 11 pm local time (2200 GMT).

Vienna Mayor Michael Ludwig told local media that almost 15 people had been shifted to hospital, of whom seven were critically injured.

The attack was carried out by “several suspects armed with rifles”, said police, adding that there had been “six different shooting locations”.

First gunshots were fired at around 8:00 pm at the Seitenstettengasse in the city’s centrally-located first district.

The shooting began just hours before Austria was to re-impose a COVID-19 lockdown.

Kurz said on Twitter that “we are experiencing difficult hours in our republic”.

“Our police will act decisively against the perpetrators of this repulsive terror attack,” he said, adding that “we will never be intimidated by terrorism and we will fight this attack with all means”.
